Casting for:

*[Ryan Avery] [GENDER: Male] [Age: 29-38] - A celebrated astronaut, Ryan Avery was esteemed by many people in his community. He beat all odds to join the NASA space group, only to die in an accident during his first mission.

**[Ben Avery] [GENDER: Male ][AGE: 7-9] - Always full of creativity and energy, Ben loves learning. Ben is extremely proud is what his father was doing and even discovered his own passion for science. However, the moments he cherished the most became increasingly rare - with just him and Dad, having fun. Now, Dad is gone, and Ben can't help but build up anger inside.

[Alice Avery] [GENDER: Female] [Age: 29-38] - Intimidatingly capable, Alice Avery could have easily been a CEO of her own corporation, happy to step down only to support her husband's massive dreams. She is smart, resourceful, and proud of her home. But perhaps with her laser focus, she forgot something terribly important along the way.

[Owen Reid] [GENDER: Male] [Age: 29-35] - (Military build desired but not required) A former US Air Force pilot and now NASA astronaut, Owen is not afraid of pushing things to the limit. He and Ryan became like brothers in training together. Ryan sees how important it is for the family to move forward, but first he has to get through the brick wall that is Alice.

Audition Instructions

★☆✧✩✰Video submissions are preferred. ★☆✧✩✰

Upload your 1- minute monologue video submission to Youtube and send the link along with your headshot, and resume to Jenna Black or submit a video link to an uploaded Google drive video. Please include "Auditions BRAVERY" in the subject bar ALONG WITH the name of the character you wish to audition for. In your video Slate your name, role auditioning for and availability.

If you would like to schedule an in person audition please email Jenna Black( )to request an appointment slot between 3:30pm- 8:30pm on January 16, 2018. Please include "Auditions - BRAVERY " in the subject bar ALONG WITH the character name you wish to audition for with attached headshot, resume and reel (if applicable) to your email.

There are no sides, however, please note the following when choosing a monologue:

Owen- Scene 2 (he has to show a tender but authoritative demeanor. Owen is like a big brother to little Ben and makes him feel like one of the grown-ups)

Alice - Scene 2 (she has to show a tender side, and grief, but also be a mama bear when it comes to protecting her family.)

Ryan -loves life and makes learning fun, but is also intensely focused and passionate. He has to have a certain likable charisma.

Ben - Because his reactions are mostly non-verbal, I need the person auditioning to show a capacity for intense emotions, intense anger, and sadness (grief). But still be a tender child with innocence.
